BREAKING – “Secret Service Bragged About Protecting Obama While Partying At Colombian Brothel” – ABC/Cartagena: “Secret Service officials accused of misconduct in Colombia revealed their identities by boasting at a Cartagena brothel that they worked for President Obama. Partying at the ‘Pley Club’ Wednesday night, eleven members of the president’s advance team allegedly bragged ‘we work for Obama’ and ‘we’re here to protect him.’ The officials spent the night throwing back expensive whiskey and enlisting the services of the club’s prostitutes, according to a bouncer at the club and a police source. Sources tell ABC News several of the men agreed to pay for, and received, services from the ‘highest category’ prostitutes available at the club, who charge upwards of $200.” --NOW AT LEAST 10 MILITARY MEMBERS SUSPECTED -- Tribune’s David S.

During his State of the State address on Thursday, Gov. Jerry Brown highlighted the need to better manage water and recharge aquifers while touting efforts at home to combat climate change."Our goal must be to preserve California’s natural beauty and ensure a vibrant economy — on our farms, in our cities, and for all the people who live here," he said. "There is no magic bullet but a series of actions must be taken."In November 2014, voters approved a $7.5 billion bond to go towards water storage, recycling and desalination projects, as well as the cleaning of groundwater pollution and more.Brown called the water bond "one of the bright spots in our contentious politics" and said that initiative, combined with the California Water Action Plan — a planning framework for elected officials, agencies, tribe and other stakeholders — "establishes a solid program to deal with the drought and the longer-term challenge of using our water wisely."The governor and his … [Read more...] about Insider: Gov.

A few weeks ago, we relied on some revenge and Monday Night magic to recommend Brett Favre as our feature start. A week after that, we went back to the Monday Night platform to suggest starting Braylon Edwards in his Jets' debut. This week, we're humming the Monday Night Football theme for our feature start again even though the numbers and matchup would tell us to look elsewhere. We're suggesting Philadelphia quarterback Donovan McNabb even though at first glance it doesn't look like a great start. The Redskins defense has been stingy this season, allowing quarterbacks to throw for 200 yards or more only twice this season. But, this might be a case where the stats are a tad misleading. The Redskins have held the likes of Marc Bulger, Josh Johnson, Jake Delhomme and Matt Cassel in check. Last we checked, McNabb is better than those quarterbacks. Eli Manning and even Matthew Stafford threw for 241 yards or more and a touchdown each against the Redskins this season. … [Read more...] about News’ Fantasy Football Friday: Who to start and who to avoid in NFL’s Week 7
In "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist," which opened Friday, Kat Dennings and Michael Cera play the title characters, two teens who happen upon each other in a Manhattan rock club when snarky gal Norah needs emo musician Nick to help her out of an awkward social 'sitch. They then spend the rest of the evening careening through the New York night, hitting hot spots, getting out of tight spots and staying cool no matter what, thanks to a hipper-than-hip soundtrack. RELATED: A LOOK AT THE MOVIE'S "PLAYLIST" Parts of the movie were filmed in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, as well as several places around the lower East Side and in the Village (the club Nick and Norah meet at is Don Hill's on Seventh Ave. South). Peter Sollett's adaptation of the 2007 novel by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan depicts an up-all-night, event-filled city. And we followed their lead, seeking out the best places to enjoy New York from dusk to dawn: from happy-hour drinks to great (and inexpensive) eats, to hot … [Read more...] about NYC all right all night in ‘Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist’
April saw at least 19 new restaurants spring up around metro Phoenix, including another deep-dish pizza parlor from Chicago. We also welcomed a European hot dog spot and several Mexican restaurants. Seven kitchens closed their doors, including Mexx32 Tacos and Tequileria in Phoenix and Vintage 95 Wine Lounge in Chandler. The Chicago deep-dish invasion continues with the new Gino’s East opening in Arcadia at Indian School Road and 36th Street, in a new building on the lot that once housed Hazelwoods First Place Sports Grill. One of the Windy City’s original deep-dish pizza brands, Gino’s East uses cornmeal in its crust, which gives it a signature texture and golden color. Caveat eater: deep-dish pizzas take 45 minutes to get here. Thin-crust pizzas, sandwiches, salads and appetizers are also served.Details: 3626 E.
